Congratulations Hollyburn Hurricanes swimmers who swam AAs in Victoria June 22-24!
Five of our swimmers competed at the AA Long Course Championships held in Victoria on the weekend. Chris Ruus had an amazing meet, bettering all 5 of his events, and qualifying for AAAs for his 100 free, going 1:03.53. Chris will be joining fellow Hurricanes Colby Evans, John Hollands and Jason Chow in Richmond in 2 weeks. Great effort Chris!
April Barnes swam 7 events, bettering 6 of her times, placing 5th in her 50 free, and 1st and 2nd in her other 6 events. Similarly, James Maycher bettered all of his times for his 5 events, and placed top 8 in every one. Wow, awesome swimming!
Carly Kagna had a fantastic meet, making finals in 3 of her 5 events, and bettering her times in both the 100 and 200 free. Natalie Reeves did an outstanding job on her races over the weekend, making best times in all 5 of her events – well done ladies! As this was our final AA meet of the year, the Hurricanes staff would like to congratulate all of our swimmers on an amazing season!
Way to go Hurricanes!
